Debby Irving, a racial justice educator and the author of the book Waking up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race will visit the Indiana University Northwest campus Wednesday, March 22, 2023 for a pair of workshops which will explore how to discuss race and gain tools to counter society’s history of power and privilege. Both workshops, co-sponsored by an Indiana Humanities INcommon Grant and the IU Northwest Diversity Advisory Council, are free and open to the public.

Indiana University Northwest’s One Book, One Campus, One Community reading program is intended to build an intellectual and social rapport among students, faculty, staff, and community members. It does this through the collective experience of reading, thinking about and discussing challenging ideas and themes that raise important social issues, especially those surrounding issues of diversity.
